Making Dreams Come True

Remember that post when I mentioned that Land Rover Defenders, pheasant hunting and hunting dogs were all part of my husband's dream life? Well, he is making that dream come true. Yep, that's right....we have a 1989 Land Rover Defender sitting in our drive way. And remember when I said the dream was also Laine's husband, Jonathan's dream? Well, they also have a Land Rover Defender sitting in their driveway but it doesn't have quite the years as Ryan's does but it fulfills both of their needs and dreams and that's all that matters.

Jonathan's new toy

Jonathan bought his locally but my dear husband decided that his was worth driving 10 hours round trip to pick up. Did I mention it was a 1989? And do you know these things don't go very fast? So, he rented a trailer and recruited two of his best buds to road trip to Northern England and pick up the monster truck, box oh right, Defender. I do believe it a great time was had by all and the look in my husbands eyes, the excitement he gets when he buys a socket wrench set at Costco so he can 'work' on it (remember 1989, that makes it 23 years old) and when he talks to Jonathan about it reminds of a young boy opening up his first train set and who am I do deny someone that pure joy? You may be laughing but that my friends is what it is, pure joy on my sweet husband's face now that he has a big boy toy to play with!

Here's to off-roading and hoping we can take this bad boy back to the US without it costing us an arm and a leg!!

Stay tuned for what the girls did while the guys were away!
